Continuing Inspiration

During World War II a student of Christian Science went to London to attend her association meeting. To material sense, the days were dark and fearsome, but the student stayed on to attend a Wednesday testimony meeting. It was a never-to-be-forgotten meeting. The church was full, and the substance of the hymns and of the reading from the desk was "Faith."

It was a simple but positive reading and must have gone right home to the thought of the people present, for when the time came for testimonies, one person after another rose and spoke of experiences when faith was tested and the power of Truth and Love was proved in the overcoming of fear, in deliverance from danger, and in the healing of various difficulties. By the time the meeting closed, the power of Spirit could be felt as a tangible reality.

It was an atmosphere which lifted everyone above the mortal sense of things so that each one must have gone out from that meeting better able to cope with whatever problem he had to face. One Christian Scientist was heard to remark that if every Church of Christ, Scientist, had the same spirit alive in its meetings, the war could not last much longer.
